the pain and wondering, where is america's outrage? where's america's concern that we're still at war? my question is, mr. speaker, why is the house of representatives still supporting a war that costs $10 billion a month? this money is borrowed primarily from the chinese. all we hear about is this financial cliff, this crisis that's facing america. my question is after 11 years, where's the outrage from congress for our men and women in uniform dying in afghanistan? 2014 is the date that the president has said we will start bringing the troops out. that is 25 more months. why do we have to wait until the end of 2014 to start bringing our troops home? how many more have to die at the hands of the very afghans they're training? october 14 "new york times" editorial titled "time to pack up," has a subtitle that says it best -- "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." mr. speaker, i have a petition on my website, the website is jones.house..gov. i'm asking people around this country to please sign this petition with the name and state, nothing else, who

a mandate to move us forward? guest: yes. i think he has america on his side. i think the administration thinks america is on his side. i think there is a sense that the democrats managed to maintain control of the senate pedometer democrats won at the white house. i think there's a feeling among democrats that they wanted these things, they should be able to put these things into place that they campaigned on which is largely taxing the rich. the house republicans feel like they also have a mandate, they kept their power, they kept the house and proposed something much different. and so the tricky thing is, everyone feels like to have a mandate moving forward. we will have to wait and see who ends up a bending and who does not. host: anything else you want to respond to? guest: i think one of the other interesting debates happening now is how important is it to deal with the deficit now obverses later. the caller really raised about and said, the debt is important. and that is one thing that the democrats think. even if there is a deficit deal and it is based on this perceived mandate o
